Q & A: English Language Library in Cuernavaca?

Occasionally I have the honor of responding to individual people’s questions about Mexico. The question and answer below have been posted with the permission of the original questioner:


I have visited Cuernavaca with my children this past summer and we hope to return for a month this coming summer. I just discovered your website and am enjoying browsing through it, finding ideas for our adventures. One concern that my boys (10, 8, & 4 years old) have is that they are AVID readers–often reading a book or two in a single day–and they are so worried that they will run out of reading material if we are there for a month! I told them I would try to find out if there is some sort of library that might have books in English for them to borrow while we’re there. Do you know of anything like that? I’d appreciate any tips!

Thanks, Tricia Patton

Hello Patricia,
I’m glad you are enjoying my site and thank you for your note. It’s always good to know that people find it useful. Have you found my articles on places to visit throughout Morelos? Those might be of particular interest to you and your family.

Your boys have a good concern and they are in luck. There is an English book library created and managed by Newcomers Club. You can contact them for more information. http://www.clickoncuernavaca.com/newcomers/Newcomers.htm. There are also some book stores in Cuernavaca.

Enjoy your trip. It sounds like you are all going to enjoy it very much.

Sincerely, Julia

P.S. They might not have many books for young readers. Your littlest may have trouble finding books he likes. They can fill you in, though.

Thanks so much!! I’ll check with them about the books for preschoolers.  Malcolm (my youngest) is actually perfectly happy to re-read the same 8 books over and over and over and over, so it’s not quite as much of an issue as it is for his older brothers!

Thanks again, Tricia
